The rise of big data has given social scientists access to vast datasets. To fully realize this opportunity, many social scientists are changing the way they work and adopting the R programming language to allow for further exploration and analysis.
In this on-demand webinar, Dr. Maja Založnik, research fellow at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, introduces the wonderful world of R and the benefits of its statistical techniques and visualizations in social science research.
The webinar covers:
- Why to use R and what it is exactly.
- The R language – simplified.
- The benefits of its statistical techniques and visualisations.
- A demonstration of how to create a regression model using R.
This webinar is perfect for those who are curious about learning the R programming language, but want to know more about its benefits for social science research first. You can watch the webinar for free below, or watch it and receive a special offer via the link below.
About Dr. Maja Založnik
Dr. Založnik is a demographer and affiliate at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing. She recently completed a post doc at the institute where she worked on a project exploring the implications for food production of the ageing agricultural sector in Vietnam, as part of the Oxford Martin School Future of Food Programme. Over the years she has analysed datasets ranging from census data to specialized surveys in the fields of demography and health at both local and global scales. She has a particular penchant for visualizing data for both exploratory analysis purposes as well as communicating results, where interactive visualizations can be particularly useful, all the while ensuring a reproducible workflow and open access to the data and analysis scripts.
